My experience at Howell has been pretty good! Certain negative aspects of high school are unavoidable, but in comparison to others I think Howell is a great school. I might have a different perspective than other students, being a part of the Humanities program, but the teachers and staff seem like they really care and there are many opportunities for extracurriculars, higher-level classes, and extra help.
My high school experience has been great! All of my teachers were supportive and helped me get an excellent education to prepare me for college. I truly feel ready for the next level, thanks to Howell High!
